For a long time, I've had this idea for a game I would call Family Poker. "I'll see your being molested by your uncle and raise you the two years that it went on." I have a feeling that it wouldn't last more than a few 'hands'.

I've always loved Lola Haskin's poems. I have to check if she has a new book coming out. I'm not familiar with those wonderful one-liners.

She just spoke them, along with others. I am not even sure they are on paper yet.

Another great one-line poems is this one by Denise Duhamel,from her book Kinky:

Native American Barbie

There's only of her left.
This is a great post. The Dangerfield assignment is fantastic - your students must have a blast. Thanks Richard.

I agree- great post. I love the idea of one line poems and will soon try one or five myself.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
